I have had no difficulty with my MacBook Pro (Intel processor)
other than getting a warning message which I simply ignore. And
I have done more than just open the notebook since my goal was
to edit it for usage by colleagues that have access to version 6
but not version 7.

But having said this, I have encountered some difficulty after
opening a notebook created in version 7 on my MacBook with
version 6 on a Windows based machine. Opening seemed to work OK
(getting the expected warning message). But attempts to edit the
message on the Windows machine caused Mathematica version 6 to
crash. I haven't yet taken time to determine what is causing the crash.
